Industrial poles in Yucatán, an investment magnet

We are very pleased that the presidential decree of the development of two industrial poles in Yucatán has been issued and that the investment sectors are expanded, said Alejandro Guerrero Lozano, president of the Association of Export Maquiladoras of Yucatán (Index ).

He also anticipated that the creation of the Progreso I and Mérida I industrial welfare hubs would surely increase the amount of foreign direct investment in Yucatan and would double or triple the value of exports, which today is almost 1.7 billion dollars in this sector.

In addition, he considered that it would contribute greater industrial value to the national and local Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

“We are talking about billions of pesos or dollars in investments because they are large companies that have very specialized machinery,” he considered. “Their buildings are large facilities that require a lot of certifications and technology to make them work.”

“Companies in this manufacturing sector invest from 50 to 100 million dollars to build and operate in Yucatán, this is what we have seen in the last three years,” he noted.

“Depending on how many will be installed in those industrial centers, the amount of the investment would be, but there are millions of dollars that would reach Yucatán.”

The president of Index Yucatán recalled that the project of the special economic zone, technological pole, and now Industrial Wellbeing Pole is an initiative that was promoted by the private sector from the government of PAN member Patricio Patrón Laviada, who bought the land on the side of the highway Mérida-Progreso.

However, in the last three six-year terms there was no progress, even when there was an inauguration of what would be the special economic zone in the Mérida-Progreso area.
